Carmelized Apple and Cheddar Panini

Apples are another classic fall flavor, and though our apple-picking bounty is gone, I still haven't grown tired of adding Fujis into my cooking.

I absolutely loved this grilled cheese twist, though I can't say the same for my kids.  Apparently, "things" don't belong in grilled cheese, and I should have served the apples on the side.

Regardless, I liked this, and think this makes a great lunch.

Carmelized Apple and Cheddar Panini
very slightly tweaked from Beantown Baker

  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • 1 apple (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 6 slices of good bread
  • 1 Tbsp butter

Preheat panini press.  Melt the butter in a non-stick pan.

Add the sugar and cinnamon and cook until bubbly.  Add the apples and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

To assemble sandwiches, divide shredded cheese and apples between 3 slices of bread.  Top each with another slice of bread and grill until golden brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.


  1. My kids won't eat regular old grilled cheese so I understand your frustration. This looks yummy - we might have to try it!

  2. I'll have to see what my kids think, I often pair apples and cheese and crackers as a snacky lunch, maybe they'd go for it, I know I would, it looks delicious!
